As a service to assist parents with the cost of educational resources, our school has chosen to operate a Student Resource Scheme.
The purpose of the scheme is to provide the parent with a cost effective alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables and/or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school's bulk purchasing processes.
The scheme operates under the policy and guidelines of the Department of Education and Training and is approved annually by the P&C Association.
Participation in the scheme is optional.
A parent who does not wish to join the scheme is responsible for providing the student with the items that would otherwise have been provided to the student by the scheme as detailed on the Subject Requirements List, to enable the student to engage with the curriculum.
All the documentation listed will assist a parent to make an informed decision on the benefits of participating in the scheme:
- SRS Participation Fee
- SRS Participation Agreement Form
All items provided for temporary student use by the scheme remain the property of the School and shall be returned at the end of the education program or school year or when the student leaves the school, whichever is the earlier. Items provided for temporary student use shall be kept in good condition by the student. Where an issued item is lost or negligently damaged or not returned, the parent may be invoiced and required to pay the replacement cost of the item.
Optional school activities such as excursions; camps; performances; formals.
Parents experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to contact the Business Manager (Finance) to discuss payment options to accommodate their circumstances.
Enrolling After School Starts
Parents will be charged a pro rata participation fee for a student who enrolls after the fourth week of school, calculated on a 40-week school year basis.
The school will make a pro rata refund to the parent of a student who, having paid the scheme fee, completes a Request for Refund and leaves the school through the year. The pro rata refund is calculated on the fees paid, less the cost of consumed materials and the replacement cost of scheme items that are lost, negligently damaged or not returned.
